Can You Seek Spousal Support If You Got Fired From Your Job?
Can You Seek Spousal Support If You Get Fired From Your Job For Stealing?
Spousal support/maintenance can be sought for any reason. She would not be ineligible for spousal support because she lost her job - not even because she was fired for theft. Spousal support is requested and granted through the family courts.
Generally, a person requests spousal maintenance based on financial need. It is easier to get maintenance in some states versus others. In my state, I worked on a case in which the wife requested spousal maintenance based on her claim that she was an unemployed, uneducated stay-at-home mom. She was awarded maintenance. Three months later, we went back to court with proof that she was working online in the adult entertainment industry . . . earning almost as much each month as my client. She had submitted declarations signed under penalty of perjury that she was not working and had no income. So, she actually perpetrated a fraud on the courts and could have been arrested and charged for perjury. We asked that spousal maintenance be terminated. This woman promptly quit working for the website and asked that the maintenance be continued. We were SHOCKED when the court ordered that maintenance continue - based on the judge's desire to keep her from working on that website. HUH? We're appealing the decision but this was the reality. And this happens every day in every jurisdiction.
If you state allows maintenance and your income has been and is significantly more than hers AND especially if the two of you have children, spousal maintenance is a possibility.
Can You Please Name Some Types Of Lawyers?
I Want To Go Into The Law Field And I Need To Know Some Types Of Lawyers Like A Criminal Or Patent Lawyer. Thanks ^-^
Lawyers can be divided according to various criteria such as the type of law in which they specialize, the types of clients they have, and which part of a case they are involved with, among other things.
The law is conveniently divided into hundreds of topics, many of which overlap. Some lawyers select an interesting topic and become experts in that area, such as federal constitutional law or local zoning law. "Business law" includes all sorts of sub-topics such as contracts, risk management, employee relations, real estate, securities, and so forth.
Types of clients can be roughly categorized: government agencies, individual people, corporations. Some lawyers represent a single client, others accept work from all sorts. For example, a private law firm could have lawyers who advise a state highway department while also advising local land-developer LLCs, not to mention individuals making claims against each other.
As for status of cases: there is an intake process and some lawyers thrive on letter-writing and preliminary advice, assisting clients to focus their objectives and select specialized counsel. Some lawyers focus on trial-court litigation. Some prefer to engage in the appeals court legal arguments. There are many attorneys who handle "transactions" such as contracts or other negotiations, or the prosecution of patent applications, and other purely administrative laws (environmental permits, energy plant approvals, fire and safety codes, etc).
My Dh Doesn'T Want Me To Hire My Own Trust And Will Attorney?
He Is Putting His Will And Trust Together, And Brought Home Some Papers For Me To Sign. Usually I Ask Him, What It Is All About, And Sign Without Reading. I Trust Him. But This Time It Happened That After He Explained To Me, That This Is A Signature That He Releases All Bonds And Stocks To Our Two Under Aged Boys 50-50, And I Am Going To Be A Ira Primary Beneficiary.
For Some Reason I Felt Pretty Uncomfortable To Sign This Paper. I Needed To Know More Information On How Much We Have In Stocks And Bonds, Which I Never Knew After Dh Inherited Some From His Late Relative A Year Ago. I Also Wanted To Know How Much Id Ira. He Answered Those Two Questions Of Mine Rather Poorly, Saying Dumb I Don;T Know. Hmmm, I Though, Who Should Know Then??
So I Asked Him To Read The Paper Before I Sign. To My Surprised, The Paper Was Ira Release To Our Two Boys (My Stepson And Our Son), As Primary 50-50 Beneficiaries.
I Said, Well Excuse Me Honey, You Have Just Said That The Paper I Am Signing Is Stocks And Bonds Release.
He Got Pretty Confused, Saying That &Quot;There Are Two Different Ira Funds...
I Am Not As Good In Finance Structure, Never Been.
That Is Why I Said, Listen, I Have To Hire An Attorney To Get Understand How All This Stocks And Trusts And Funds Work.
He Got Very Upset About It, Saying Literally: Ok, You Want Divorce??? I Work Hard Here Trying To Provide, And You Have No Trust In Me??? And Walk Away.
A Red Flag?
You need to read those papers, and it's not a trust issue. If he drops dead tomorrow, or gets hit by a bus, you NEED to have a degree of financial literacy you can rely upon.
The saddest thing in the world, once or twice a year, I get a customer whom I've insured for DECADES, and her husband just died . . .and she has NO IDEA how insurance works, or what's covered, etc.
Don't cripple yourself. Be an active partner in the marriage, and that includes being privy to both financial decisions AND knowing what and why.
Now, he probably legally CAN'T take you off of being beneficiary of the IRA - I do believe EVERY state requires this. Regarding the boys, if he's releasing all stocks and bonds to them, that means THEIR legal guardian will get total control of the assets. It's usually a pretty bad idea.
He probably gets monthly statements on the IRA. He SHOULD have a pretty good idea, within $10,000, how much is in there. Likely, with less than five minutes of effort on his part, he can get the info down to the penny, of the value of the stocks, bonds, and IRA. That's not an unreasonable request on your part.
You don't need an attorney. You need a marriage counselor. And for heaven's sake, do NOT relinquish your automatic ownership in the IRA. The ONLY reason I can think of, that he's turning the IRA stuff over to your boys NOW, is to get your name off of it, so you can't get half of it if he decides to divorce YOU.
The obvious answer to "I try to provide but you have no trust in me", is, "you're hiding assets from me, and question MY trust?"
And I don't think he'd mention the D word, unless he was already thinking about it.

Mutual Child Custody Agreements?
Alright Me And My Ex Are Trying To Write Up A Mutual Child Custody Agreement But I Am The One Writing It And I Want To Make Sure I Get All The Information In It That I Need And Make It As Detailed As Possible But Have No Idea Of What All I Should Put In It I Have A Whole Bunch In It Already But Feel Like I Am Still Missing Things, The Main Things I Have In It Is Who She Lives With And Who Has Access And Details About The Access. But That's Pretty Much All I Have In There. I'm Hopping Someone Here Can Give Me Some Tips On What Else I Need Or What Details To Make Sure I Add?
There are factors to be consider
Joint legal custody
Joint physical custody
How close do you live to him?
How old is the child?
Who covers medical insurance?
Who decides on treatment
How much and how long?
Is support paid through college?
What is the minimum credit hours the child must take?
Who gets the tax deduction?
If the residential parent dies, who gets the child? Never assume anything.
If you email me I can help you both, but you don't need to be doing this yourself. You should be using a mediator, than file the results with the court. Cost $500 to $1000.
May I ask why the divorce or separation? It's very important that the child have both parents in the home. Is there nothing that can be done toward this end?
Here's a few books that might help.

Elder Law Attorneys?
I Recently Graduated Law School And Will Be Taking The Florida Bar In July. I Have Decided To Practice Elder Law And I Am Seeking Any Advice And/Or Guidance Such As:
Best Way To Break Into The Field?
What Areas In Florida Have A Higher Demand For Elder Law Attorneys?
Any Helpful Information Welcome. Thanks!
I'm not personally in the legal field but have seen some non-profit organizations that may help with advocating for those that are older. Perhaps that can provide a great deal of experience in order to continue in that area of law.
